    New show starts this Sunday. It looks like it is entirely based on the retrieval of a billion dollars worth of silver that was lost in a shipwreck long ago. I remember recently hearing that this wreck was found about six months ago roughly.

    SILVER RUSH, a new three-part series narrated by Mike Rowe, premieres Tuesday, Feb. 12 at 10 PM E/P and tells the story of one of the greatest deep-sea treasure quests of all time. The series will take viewers on board Odyssey's flagship, the Odyssey Explorer, as it launches its most audacious operation ever -- locate and excavate three shipwrecks worth as much as a billion dollars all in one season.

    Gutted human remains got in the way of possibly discovering the yellow stuff...

    But actually quite pleased to see those in charge buried the remains and left the site rather than disturb it.
    Who'd do that knowing there may be $1 billion worth of gold at the site?

    it was alright but should have been named "deep sea treasure salvage" cuz the name "silver rush" implied silver mining as with gold rush, but not the case.

    I think they could have made money by selling the bars as collectors items and by melting some of them down into rounds made from silver recovered from the wreck....

    Actually, slicing off the top few centimetres so people can get a cut-down bar with all the markings and serial numbers would be cool.

    Cheaper than a 30kg bar too.
